Rehabilitating a Redwood Grove

By September 19, 2010Uncategorized

Wonderful volunteers (new and old) including Mike, Pax, Julia, and Kay came out and helped us continue our work at a local Marin house. This SPAWN-owned land sits right on the San Geronimo Creek in Lagunitas and one day will house interns and volunteers. It will also make a wonderful showcase for educating students about redwood forest and stream ecology (not to mention the wonderful redwood shade is lovely on hot summer days!). We worked hard at removing invasive hypericum that had dominated much of the understory around the house. We also tended to newly planted trees and beautiful coffeeberry! Join us this fall/winter for more planting, or just to check out the awesome old-growth redwood stump that still has evidence of logging from over a hundred years ago!
